Micro Machines is a series of computer and video games featuring toy cars, developed by Codemasters and published on several platforms (including Nintendo Entertainment System, Amiga, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Boy, PlayStation 2 and Sega Game Gear) between 1991 and 2006. The series is based on the Micro Machines toy line of miniature vehicles.
Micro Machines is the first game in the series laid the foundation of the gameplay: a top-down racing game with miniature vehicles. The race tracks are unconventionally themed. For example, some races take place on a billiard table while others occur in a garden. The cartridge itself was gold (black in Europe) with a switch at the bottom in order to be compatible with the American and European hardware. It was also released as an add-on to the Aladdin Deck Enhancer created by Codemasters.
The game was ranked the 14th best game of all time by Amiga Power, while Mega placed the game at #10 in their Top Mega Drive Games of All Time. MegaTech gave the game 92% and a Hyper Game award.
